A fellow ILPA (Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association) member has brought to our attention the following an important change to the rules Tier 2 Entry Clearance and Leave to Remain applications, which came into effect on 31 March. 

Previously, applicants submitting an application for entry clearance or leave to remain as a Tier 2 ICT migrant worker were able to provide online stamped and signed print outs of payslips for a six month period preceding the date of application by way of evidence that they have been employed by the overseas entity for the last six months. 

However, paragraph 116 (I) of the new Tier 2 Policy Guidance, now states that this is no longer acceptable. In cases where applicants receive their payslips online, ‘the applicant will be required to submit a letter from the sponsor, confirming the authenticity of the payslips. This letter must be on company headed paper, and must be signed by a senior official’. 

Two questions have been put to ILPA members: 

  1. Whether the letter from the sponsor confirming the authenticity of the payslips must be original, or whether a copy of this will suffice for an application for entry clearance or leave to remain? 
  2. What position would be deemed to be a ‘senior official’?

  1. This is a new procedure. You should follow this up with the British Embassy who will be carrying out the administrative review.

  2. SIR, HOW LONG DOES AN ADMINISTRATIVE APPEAL TAKE WHEN THE DOCS WAS PASSED MAY 4, 2009 IN THE PHILIPPINES HOW CAN WE KNOW THE STATUS OF HIS APPEAL? TANX

  3. HOW LONG DOES AN APPEAL BE PROCESSED? REGARDING THE STANDARD OF EDUCATIONAL SCHOOL I\HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES, WHAT IS THE STANDARD OF PAMPANGA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE? BECAUSE MY HUSBAND CAME FROM THAT SCHOOL AND HE JUST GAINED 5 POINTS WHERE IN FACT MANY OF THE GRADUATES OF PAMPANGA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE ARE NOW ALREADY WORKING IN THE UK AS TO GRADUATES OF AGRICULTURE, HOPE BY THIS YOU WILL HELP MY HUSBAND IN HIS APPEAL FOR HE REALLY WANTS TO WORK IN THE UK AND HE COULD APPLY HIS KNOWLEDGE AND IDEAS ABOUT THE WORK HE IS APPLYING FOR,HE IS HOPING AND AIMING THAT UR GOVERNMENT WOULD ALLOW HIM TO WORK IN UR COUNTRY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.GOD BLESS AND MORE POWER, I DO PRAY THAT THE ONE WHO WILL HANDLE HIS PAPERS DURING THE APPEAL WOULD BE IN GOOD MOOD AND AT PEACE, BE ENLIGHTENED SO HE CAN FOCUS ON REVIEWING THE DOCUMENTS. THANK YOU

    In many cases that the UKBA and the ECO lost cass are where they failed to verify documents adequately before reaching their decision.

    In terms of the level of Senior staff to sign a letter must be someone at the post of Manager or Team leader or the Managing Director depending on the management style and size of the organisation in question.

  5. UK BORDER PROTECTOR says :

    THE UKBA will get more news and idea how to trace and block bogus and non realistic document and deporting them soon.

  6. Pronto Migro says :

    The UKBA recognise, of course, that it’s easy to purchase fake payslips online to misrepresent your earnings in order to claim more points. Thousands have got their HSMP and Tier 1 through this route.
